We dont know how she was injured to cause her rear leg paralysis but we do know that she was dumped at a shelter by her owners as they no longer wanted to care for her disability. This doesnt slow her down one bit. She has a little pink cart that she speeds around in. Cookie is spayed, microchipped and fully vaccinated.

"Gary" Chihuahua - Male

8 yrs old - 8 lbs

Gary came to Open Arms Rescue after a rescuer in Tijuana called us asking if we could help this little soul. He wound up at our vet in Mexico in critical condition. He was covered in lesions, injuries, infections and ticks, as well as having a badly broken foot. The vet didn't know if he would make it. Well a few months later and he is healthy and happy in a foster home in San Diego
The vet was able to mend all of his injuries and wound up removing hundreds of ticks from his tiny body. He had extensive surgery on his foot, including the insertion of pins. The pins have been removed and he is now ready for his forever home. He walks, jumps and runs normal.

"Opi" Chihuahua - Male

1 yr old - 5 lbs

Meet Opi (short for Opossum because he has a cute little long snout w/an underbite like a Opossum)!
We rescued him in the last hour at a high kill shelter up north. They were going to put him to sleep because he had a cold! So we scrambled to get a person in the last hour to go to this shelter in the pouring rain in horrible traffic conditions and just made it as they won't hold the dogs even if a rescue is in route! We brought him back to our rescue and nursed him back to health. He spent a week at the vet because of his bad bad doggy cold. This was a couple months ago so now he has put on weight, and it totally healthy and super playful. LOVES other dogs Must go to a home with another dog because he loves to play see video youtube.

His adoption fee through our rescue covers him being fully vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered. To learn more about adopting this sweet little boy, please go to our site at There is also an online application on the home page
